Helen Bader Foundation grants funds to local organizations

The Helen Bader Foundation recently presented the YWCA of Greater Milwaukee and the Milwaukee Water Council with grants to support their organization initiatives.
The Milwaukee Water Council received a one-year, $50,000 grant to help fund the Water Council initiatives.
“This grant from the Bader Foundation is a huge statement,” said Dean Amhaus, executive director of the Water Council. “For this Foundation to step up early in the Water Council’s history provides significant credibility to a new organization. This will afford us the opportunity to help further grow Milwaukee’s burgeoning water industry.”
“It has been very impressive to see what the Water Council has been able to accomplish so far,” said Daniel Bader, President of the Helen Bader Foundation. “The Council has linked companies, universities, entrepreneurs, scientists, environmentalists, and civic leaders to set some truly remarkable things in motion.  As a region, it’s vital that we support and expand those partnerships.”
The YWCA received a $25,000 grant that will go toward improving the FoodShare Employment and Training (FSET) program at the YWCA.
